This is President Donald Trump’s signature book, detailing his business and world view. For Evangelical Christians who voted for Trump – at the expense of the other Biblically qualified candidates, I suggest you get your hands on it and read it.
Every President comes to the office with a personal world view and philosophy that subsequently impacts the decisions they make, that then impact and influence, not only the citizens of the United States, billions of others globally. That is the extent of the United State’s reach.
Ronald Reagan and George Bush Sr. and Jr. had world views and philosophies, conservative rugged individualism and self sufficiency grounded in their ranch upbringings and military service. Obama has a world view grounded in corrupt Chicago, big city politics and “progressive” socialist outlook.
Trump? A big city liberal until just recently. All business and every decision from here on out influenced by that cost/benefit world view, and his high-flying campaign promises and rhetoric, oh, the Monday after inauguration day, to come crashing up against the rocks of the reality of his adversary’s opposition, both here and abroad.
Should we pray and support him as President? You bet! Will he “Make America Great Again?” For a while, in the eyes of a lost world with a truly messed up view of what “greatness” is, opposed to greatness in God’s economy. It is unfortunate and a sign of the times many professing Christians in this nation are so deluded by the former.
I’ve dealt with sketchy salesmen my whole life. And I know one when I see them. Evangelical Christianity was just sold a bill of goods. I really have a problem with that. More so, I have a problem with high-profile Christian celebrity “leaders” using their pulpits and position to issue verbal threats, religious coercion, and guilt manipulation, as was prevalent during this election cycle, to abandon Biblical principle and truth for “pragmatism,” in strong-arming the flock of God to vote a certain way. Yet, it is their same moral and spiritual corruption that sowed the cultural ground to produce this insane situation.
And the Lord is going to bless this?
We will see.
8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. (Matthew 4:8-9)
